#AskCoachB: Reed's impact on Terps

3/21/2014

Want to ask ESPN RecruitingNation national recruiting director Paul Biancardi a question about basketball recruiting? Tweet it to @PaulBiancardi using the hashtag #AskCoachB.

Maryland returns nearly its entire roster, so the Terps have every position covered. What they don't have, however, is a shot blocker. Maryland's leading returning shot blockers are small forward Dez Wells and Jake Layman, who both average less than one block per game. That is exactly what 7-foot-1 Trayvon Reed, the No. 68 overall prospect in the ESPN 100 and the No. 8 center, brings.

Reed could be an X-factor next season. He provides the one element Maryland doesn't have coming back and that you need to win titles.
